Franschhoek Wine Valley

Meet Puttonyos – our Franschhoek wine dog for July 2015

My name is Puttonyos and I am a Cocker Spaniel. I reside on the beautiful Four Paws Wine farm in the Franschhoek Wine Valley

I am named after the sugar level in the Tokaj sweet wine, Aszú, which originates from Hungary. The more Puttonyos the sweeter the wine, with anything from four, five or six Puttonyos upwards. I am obviously a six Puttonyos. Sweet indeed! I get my unusual Spaniel markings from my parents. The perfect combination of black and brown. I belong to the Four Paws Wines team who refer to me as their ‘PR Paw’. I like that, because I am absolutely crazy about people, the more visitors the happier I am.

I love welcoming the visitors at their cars. And you know, the lower a two paw animal’s (aka human) face is to the ground, the more I like them, because then I can give them a big slobbery wet Four Paws welcome.
